"The Last Lion in the Senate"

I appreciated this article today. In these days of heightened political awareness, of division within and between parties, of partisan politics, recession, high gas prices, and finger-pointing, it's nice to be reminded that there are things more important than all these fleeting issues. I'm reminded, amid all the distractions and talking heads and pundits posing as prophets, that there are some things that are actually life and death, most of them not on the 24-hour news cycle. And I'm reminded that behind all this political maneuvering are real men who still bleed and weep.

I disagree with many of Ted Kennedy's political views, but none of that matters with the news of his illness. He's suddenly become human--if that makes any sense--someone who is facing his mortality, just like the rest of us will do someday.
